I'm delighted with the Chelsea dress and am wearing it everywhere! I'm 5'8" and 150lbs with slightly wide hips and shoulders, and I usually wear a medium or size 10. I ordered the Chelsea in Medium (I usually order small for Tradlands button ups, but sized up to allow for my hips) and am very happy with the fit! The sleeves are a little long so I cuff them once for a perfect fit. As always with Tradlands, the fabric and quality of construction are top-notch.
I have been looking for a shirt dress that looks good on me and hangs well. This is the One. The fabric is beautiful, and even though it is heavier, thanks to its composition, it is very comfortable, even in the AZ summer. The length is great, hitting right at my knee (I'm 5'8"), and the medium is a perfect fit. I've got a big butt but smaller shoulders and waist, and it isn't too tight at my hips. It's really gorgeous. I tried it with a belt and without, and it looks polished without looking stuffy. I also tried it buttoned halfway over skinny jeans, and it also looked amazing. The craftsmanship is lovely, just as I would expect from Tradlands. Really really love it.
Perfect length and slightly oversized fit. Great quality material and looks amazing with or without a belt. Classic staple!
This is a dress for all seasons. I got it in pine since I wanted an interesting color that is wearable in all seasons (black might feel too warm in summer). I am 5'1", 36-30-41, usually wear a medium in other brands and got the size S (this is my size for most tradlands pieces I own). The box pleat at the back gives good mobility and the fitting is perfect for me, not too oversized or tight. I still have to use safety pins to avoid gaping. It is not tight but I prefer not to be too conscious while moving around. That is just me with every button down I own. Tradlands please consider adding extra buttons around breast area in styles like these where the buttons are concealed. The dress washes well, I hang it to dry and throw it in the dryer for a few minutes to take out any creases. If you sit for some time wearing it, creases might appear in the front, if that bothers you, black might be better. But these are light creases and don't bother me. I wear it as is, with leggings/black jeans with the bottom few buttons open. Love it overall! Only wish is that it came with pockets.
Very beautiful dress. Good quality fabric, not see through. Falls to the knees. Good fit in the arms. Drapes beautifully. A masculine look that makes me feel sexy.
